Thank You, Alpha Testers!

It's a common theme in the way the Iowa IDEA system works: personnel from the DE and AEAs work together to produce applications that are used by special education and Early ACCESS service providers from across the state. This story is currently being repeated as preparations are being made for the July 1, 2013 release of Iowa IDEA.

Since March 2012, a group of nine (9) people from the AEAs and DE have been testing the "to be released" web IEP and IMS.  The people who are dedicated to the testing of the new applications bring to the table special skills and attributes such as:

  • knowledge of how the product is to work
  • patience
  • fortitude
  • being a team player
  • strong communication skills
  • strong analytical skills
  • persistence
  • sense of humor
  • calmness

Thanks to the alpha testers who, behind the scenes, are working tirelessly to ensure that the applications will work under various conditions.
